Statement from a Transnational Collective of Surfers on the War on Gaza

3rd November 2023

We, the undersigned, are a transnational group of surfers and members of the surfing community whose ancestors come from all over the world. We encompass surfers, coaches, competitors, photographers, videographers, surf industry representatives, event organisers, surf media, and individuals associated with surf-related nonprofit organisations and businesses. We are a diverse community, spanning multiple and intersecting faiths, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender expressions, and identities, including many proud First Nations peoples from various continents. While connected through our shared love for surfing, we come together at this moment to express solidarity with Palestine.

The war on Gaza did not begin on the 7th October, and we mourn all lives lost as a result of the ongoing occupation of Palestinian territories. The news coming from Gaza since the 7th has, however, grown more horrifying by the day. Thousands of innocent people have been killed. Neighbourhoods have been flattened by bombings. Refugee camps attacked. Hospitals are overflowing with people with shocking injuries, and exhausted medical staff are operating with the most basic of medical supplies.

Statements by UN bodies, including the Secretary General, have been unequivocal – Israel’s targeting of Palestinian civilians and civilian infrastructure is in clear violation of international law. The complete cutting off and attacking of Gaza is collective punishment and a war crime. Experts in human rights, international law, and ethnic, race, and genocide studies, together with various NGOs and humanitarian agencies, have defined Israel’s attack on Gaza as an act of genocide. 

At the time of writing this statement, the death toll is over 9,000 – by the time you read this, that number will have increased. Those killed include more than 3,700 children and 2,300 women. At least 72 UN staff, 135 medical staff including paramedics and 36 journalists have been killed. This is to say nothing of the mass displacement of people, and the thousands missing or trapped beneath rubble; nor the horrific destruction of basic civil infrastructure and supplies, including food, water, electricity, and fuel**.

We join the growing international community – including the overwhelming majority of UN member states – who support a ceasefire. We condemn those governments who are acting complicit in the face of blatant violations of international humanitarian and criminal law. 

We demand our governments support an immediate ceasefire, the opening of Gaza’s borders, the release of all hostages, and the immediate provision of humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people as necessary first steps. 

All efforts internationally must address the underlying causes of these atrocities and urgently end Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism. Every effort should be made to forge a path to lasting peace with justice. 

Abstention at this time of humanitarian catastrophe is not a politically neutral position. We must condemn the apartheid state of Israel at the same time as we refuse a conflation of anti-Zionism with antisemitism, and we must do so as a matter of urgency.

As people whose lives are built through and around the ocean, we are acutely aware of the importance of respecting and protecting Indigenous sea and country, and we will not be silent as the people of Palestine face ethnic genocide. As a global community of surfers, we stand in solidarity with the surfers of Gaza whose lives are under threat and who are being forcibly displaced from their access to the Mediterranean Sea.

We encourage others in the surfing industry and community to also speak out, without fear of retribution. We must not be complicit in these war crimes, nor silent in the face of this inhumanity.

IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE SURFING COMMUNITY AND WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THIS STATEMENT, PLEASE FOLLOW THE BELOW LINK TO FILL OUT THE FORM. THE GENERAL SIGNATORIES LIST WILL BE UPDATED PERIODICALLY. 

** In the time between writing and publishing this statement the situation in Gaza has become even more dire. At the time of publication, 19 November 2023, the UN Situation Report, continued to draw on 11 November data, noting updates had not occurred for several days due to communication breakdowns. The 11 November figures reported 11,078 Palestinians killed, 27,490 injured, 1.6 million internally displaced, and at least 45% of Gaza’s housing units destroyed or damaged. The Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor reported on 19 November that the Palestinian death toll is now believed to be 20,000. The World Health Organisation indicated that almost 75 per cent of the hospitals in Gaza were no longer functional due to lack of fuel, damage, attacks and insecurity. Those remaining are struggling to help patients due to lack of basic supplies. The spread of disease across Gaza is now also a troubling concern, with Gazan Ministry of Health, UNRWA and WHO citing tens of thousands of reported acute skin, respiratory and stomach infections. A ceasefire grows more pressing by the minute.
